Lekisha Brown was one of the first children to be cared for by Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice before she passed away aged ten, but her memory still lives on as her uncle raised £1,000 for the hospice eight years on.

Clayton Tindle, 29, jumped out of a plane at 15,000 feet in memory of Lekisha to raise money for the Sheffield hospice which gave the family “outstanding support.”

He said: “The skydive was a ride of emotions.

"Before Bluebell Wood opened its doors, Lekisha and the family had to travel further for respite care, but once Bluebell Wood arrived, things were much easier. We really valued being able to spend time with Lekisha in the end of life suite after she passed away.

“Being somewhere that felt like a home from home made a real difference.”
